Eugene Capon

A social media futurist, Eugene's forward thinking attitude towards how we connect using technology has been at the forefront of his mission to connect the world and pave the way to the metaverse. In 2014 he graduated with a BA in Liberal Arts with an emphasis on "YouTube Studies" from Evergreen State. Upon graduation he went to work at the YouTube Consulting Agency, Press Play where he was focused on next level visual content in the motion graphics and animation genre.

In 2016 he quit his job as an art director to pursue XR and social media. Eugene's first project was producing the film "Journey VR". This film became an official selection at SIFF, a staff pick by Adobe and VEER, then would become the number one 360 video download on Steam for 30 days at the time of its release.

A year later he would produce and host GLITCHED, the first in VR talk show to be ordered as if it were a TV show. The show revolved around interviewing large name tech and social media influencers like Barnacules Nerdgasm, iJustine, Jake Roper of Vsauce3 and Gearlive. The show ran for a total of 3 seasons.

Since then he has been an avid XR creator making VR and 360 experiences with millions of views and one of the world's most profound evangelists of the Metaverse.
